The Emergency Ward 10 Gallery
All scans come from the long-deleted video 'Life in Emergency Ward 10' ; but my correspondent Rikki was kind enough to send me his copy. The film was based on the long-running TV series, which was the UK's first major medical drama. It ran from the late '50s to the mid -'60s, and proved that Doctors and Nurses were good for the ratings. It focused mainly on the romances between the staff, and the day-to-day medical dilemmas faced by them. Although nowhere near as bloody as
, it was considered cutting edge drama in it's day. I was far too young to appreciate it at the time, but I can remember my mum and gran watching it avidly.
New March 2007 - The trailer for the original TV series can be found here.
